AMS Expert

Charming lady and a great climber, Ms. Liga Plakane comes from a mountaineering family, rich with knowledge and alpinist traditions. She had climbed extensively since the age of 14 and later participated in and organized several expeditions to 7000 & 8000 peaks herself . Such as:

  • Peak Khan-Tengri,
  • Peak Ismoil Somoni (Communism Peak),
  • Peak Lenin,
  • Peak Korzhenevskoy,
  • Mount Elbrus,
  • Mount Kazbek,
  • Muztagh-Ata,
  • Mount McKinley,
  • Aconcagua,
  • Cho Oyu,
  • Shishapangma,
  • Makalu.

Add to this Dr Biology specializing in Exercise and Extreme Situation Physiology, especially in high mountain hypoxia and AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness) and you have a perfect combination of modern theory and practical application.

When not climbing, Liga lectures as a professor at the University of Latvia and runs and skies endurance races (ultratrails and worldloppets). She is one of a few specialists in the AMS field in the Nordics and has written 20 studies on hypoxia and exercise physiology.

As a special courtesy to Liga agreed to share her unique knowledge and consult climbers in AMS related subjects for a symbolic fee. Consulting can be arranged in person (Latvija / Baltics) or via Skype. This would give you good understanding of AMS, its effects, preventive measures, available medicine and emergency response.

We are thankful to Liga and happy that we can offer you this opportunity. We hope it will make your climbs safer
